Aside from headlining his very own Made In America music festival this year, Jay Z will also be headlining this year's Austin City Limits music festival in Austin, Texas.

The rapper was announced late Thursday night after the festival had already announced its lineup, with the event teasing Jay Z's appearance through its official app by quoting Jay Z's "Encore" with the lyrics, "Now, can I get an encore? Do you want more?"

The festival, which talks place on October 6-8 and 13-15, will also include performances from Chance The Rapper, Gorillaz, Solange, Run The Jewels, Ice Cube, Thundercat and more.

Jay Z's appearance at Made In America will be happening before the one at ACL, with the former happening on September 2-3 at Philadelphia's Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The rapper and entrepreneur will be sharing headlining slots with J. Cole and The Chainsmokers, but the festival will also include performances from Solange, Migos, Run The Jewels, Little Dragon, Sampha, DMX and more.

The festival dates have led to people speculating that Jay Z has a new album on the way. Recently, longtime Jay Z collaborator Swizz Beatz teased the possibility of a new album from the rapper, posting an image of himself and Jay Z with the following caption on Instagram: "They don’t even know what’s about to happen. Album ModeZone."

The most recent song Jay Z has been a part of is Frank Ocean's surprise single "Biking," which also features Tyler, the Creator.
